As a new viral tie-in website launches for The Hunger Games, eleven new images have also been put online, giving us a closer look at many of the characters.
Based on the hugely successful novel trilogy by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games is set in the futuristic world of Panem, as the story follows a young girl, Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence), as she becomes a contestant in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death competition held by the government in which only one young person will survive.
The website, Capitol Couture, opened in full a few weeks ago and offers fashion tips from the world of Panem, including a profile article on Effie Trinket (played by Elizabeth Banks).
The photos reveal a closer look at the characters, including that of Lawrence and Banks, as well as Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson).
Whilst the images are largely of the scenes that can be seen in the film’s trailer, we are yet to see any images from the actual games. Still, this is enough to get us looking forward the adaptation.
Also starring Liam Hemsworth, Wes Bentley, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones and Donald Sutherland, The Hunger Games is set be released on 23rd March.
